My Daughters Spring Break on a Horse

Mortgage and Lending with 214-728-0449 NMLS # 322646

Since the age of 6, my daughter has been into Riding Horses. Over the past few years, she has been competing in the Hunter/Jumper division in North Dallas. Last year, she placed #1 in North Dallas for the 2'6" division. I'll blog about that shortly, and of course include some pictures for you Horse lovers.

Each Spring break (or at least for the past 3 years) my daughter has gone on a day trip with the other gals at Stony Glen Stables. They take the horses out on a trail and they jump over some trees, log piles, etc. I'm attaching some video because this was the first time I've seen them go into the water.

My daughter told me at some point she could feel the horse actually swimming for a little bit before making her way out to this little island. Its not a large body of water, but enough to get them all wet.

This video is about 8.5 minutes long. The jumps start off small and then work their way up. The water portion is about the 6 minute mark if you want to jump ahead. :-)  Otherwise, sit back, enjoy the videos and pics, and also enjoy some country music.


And if you are interested in more information about the barn, go to www. and/or contact the head trainer and owner Julie Holmquest. They are located Aubrey, TX which is just North of 380 and Little Elm.

Teral - She did have a good time for sure. Each year they do something a little different. This was the first time in the water with the horses. Overall, they are out there for about 5 hours (including lunch) so everyone gets a good workout.

Jared - Thanks for checking it out.
